So far I completed all 3 Pimsleur units as well as Michel Thomas (didn't do advanced one though). My plan of attack is:

- Duolingo (30-60 min/day)
- Memrise (30-60 min/day)
- RussianWorld youtube series - one 30 minute lesson a day
- Real Russian Club lesson youtube series (1 hour but split into 30 minute blocks)

I am hoping once I complete all of these I can then go to Ukraine/Belarus or Russia and start immersing myself as well as possibly doing some group course.

Get yourself a grammar book, the New Penguin one is good from experience but most are pretty similar. Realistically knowing the grammar rules back to front makes things a lot easier and is a strong foundation.

Getting an anki set can really help as well for extending your vocabulary. Then just practice, if you can find someone to talk to that's a really strong option as they can really help the pronunciation (which I find brutal, Aussie accent does not help!) and things that just don't sound right.
